    ANNAPOLIS, Md. — Archaeologists in Maryland say they believe they have found the homesite of famed abolitionist Harriet Tubman’s father. The homesite of Ben Ross was found on property acquired last year by the US Fish and Wildlife Service as an addition to Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge, officials said Tuesday. An archaeology team led by the State Highway Administration conducted research that led to the find. Archaeologist Julie Schablitsky described the finding as a connection to Tubman. “She would’ve spent time here as a child, but also she would’ve come back and been living here with her father in her teenage years, working alongside him,” Schablitsky said in a news release. “This was the opportunity she had to learn about how to navigate and survive in the wetlands and the woods. We believe this experience was able to benefit her when she began to move people to freedom.” Tubman was...

    Getty Former Los Angeles Lakers big man Mychal Thompson. Prior to LeBron James and Anthony Davis joining forces, the Los Angeles Lakers were linked to a lot of star players. One guy who would’ve made a lot of sense on the squad is Golden State Warriors star Klay Thompson. His father, Mychal Thompson, won two championships with the franchise and he grew up in Los Angeles. While he’s had chances to go play for his dad’s former team, the pull to stay with the Warriors has been too strong. Any chances of Thompson coming back home seem pretty much dead at this point in his career. However, Mychal Thompson made it clear that he tried to get his son to be a Laker when he was younger. See? I TRIED to make him one…But the Dam Warriors got to him first… pic.twitter.com/CjxJYWzCeL — Mychal Thompson (@champagnennuts) April 17,...

    Klay Thompson is arguably one of the best shooters of this generation. The 31-year-old was a key player in the Warriors’ three championships, bailing them out with his crucial three-pointers. But for nearly two years, the electrifying shooter hasn’t played a single game due to injuries. In 2019, Thompson suffered from a terrible ACL tear in the finals and was sidelined for a year. He was expected to be fully healthy for the 2020-21 season. But bad luck struck again as he suffered from an Achilles injury a month before the start of the season. The 31-year-old is now due to make his comeback for the next season.

    After missing the entire last season, NBA fans were excited to see Klay Thompson return this season. However, the Warriors star suffered another season-ending injury in the offseason. As a result, the franchise had to make several adjustments to fill this void. But despite their best efforts, the team is yet to find its top form this season.

    The 2020 NBA season put a stop to the Golden State Warriors‘ reign of terror. They finished dead last in the league with just 15 wins, a dismal number caused mainly due to injuries to the Splash Brothers – Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson. Curry injured his left hand early in the season, while Klay tore his left ACL in the 2019 NBA finals. Furthermore, Kevin Durant left the Warriors for Brooklyn Nets in the offseason, contributing to the Warriors’ disastrous season. However, things are looking good for the Warriors once again. Steph and Klay are healthy again, and the team has the #2 pick in the 2020 draft, which guarantees them an exciting rookie player. Klay’s father, Mychal Thompson, recently gave an update about his son’s recovery. “He’s doing great, he’s going at full speed and just back at being a basketball player, fully healthy. He’s feeling good, and...

    (CNN)Michael Thompson has been in prison for 24 years, serving what his attorneys say is essentially "a death sentence."The 69-year-old was convicted in the late 1990s following a marijuana sale that spurred a search in his home, where officials found weapons. Due to prior convictions, the judge handed Thompson a decades-long sentence for drug and weapon-related charges, one that advocates say is both harsh and disproportionate to the crime. His earliest possible release date is 2038.With now an army of supporters behind him pushing for a commuted sentence -- including Michigan's attorney general -- Thompson's family hopes he could be a free man sooner than that. It will give him the chance to spend time with the grandchildren and great-grandchildren he's never met, his daughter says.But Thompson was transferred to a medical facility after testing positive for coronavirus earlier this month and suffers from diabetes and other health conditions that...
